Does Global DCV Passthrough affect performance?

Hello,

In the description of Use a Global DCV Passthrough instead of .htaccess modification (requires EA4) I have:
When you enable this option, Apache adds global rewrite rules to the webserver configuration so that the system does not process additional rewrite rules for DCV filenames. These global rules make it unnecessary for cPanel & WHM to modify each virtual host’s .htaccess file. Note: When you enable this option, the system receives a trivial performance penalty because all of the HTTP requests must be matched against the DCV filename regular expressions.
Does this affect performance temporarily or definitely?

Hello,

It's a persistent change (it checks every HTTP request), but it's not something that should result in any meaningful performance loss.

Thank you.
